Italy Shake Up Starting XI for Final EURO 2024 Warm-Up Against Bosnia

Italy is making significant changes to their starting lineup ahead of EURO 2024, with a final friendly match against Bosnia and Herzegovina. Manager Luciano Spalletti has confirmed that Gianluca Scamacca, Nicolò Fagioli, Jorginho, and Alessandro Buongiorno will be in the starting XI for the match, which will take place at the Stadio Castellani in Empoli on Sunday.

The Italian team is undergoing a tactical transformation, switching from a 4-2-3-1 formation to a 3-4-2-1 setup. This shift will see new faces on the field, including Juventus midfielder Fagioli and Inter man Nicolò Barella, who is expected to recover from a muscular injury in time for the tournament opener against Albania on June 15.

Scamacca, who missed the previous match against Turkey due to club commitments, is set to lead the attack alongside Giacomo Raspadori and Lorenzo Pellegrini. Other players like Federico Chiesa, Davide Frattesi, and Michael Folorunsho are also viable options for the team.

In defense, Torino’s Buongiorno will join a three-man backline alongside Guglielmo Vicario. The probable Italy lineup for the match is as follows: Vicario; Darmian, Buongiorno, Calafiori; Cambiaso, Jorginho, Fagioli, Dimarco; Raspadori, Pellegrini; Scamacca.

The changes in the Italian squad are aimed at fine-tuning their tactics and strategy before the start of the EURO 2024 tournament. Fans can expect an exciting match as Italy prepares to face off against Bosnia in their final warm-up game.
